I've hiked this mountain before back in September, but this time I was so, so nervous. I kept thinking my blood sugar was going to get really low and I wouldn't be able to keep up with everyone. On Friday, I went to Target and bought $15 worth of food for this hike....a day hike. lol. I was popping starburst the whole way up! Well, I made it to the top safe and sound....and my blood sugar was a wonderful 137! No low!
Climibing Mount Monadnock made me realize how far I've come. When I got diagnosed almost 6 years ago, I was hesitant to do the simplest things in fear that my blood sugar would go low. Even going to get a hair cut was scary for me! What if I got low while the woman was cuttng my hair??!?!?! I couldn't give myself shots and could barely do finger pricks. Well, now I can give shots, change my pump sites, I know the carb count of almost anything edible, I know what makes me low and what makes me high....I've come so far!
Happy Monday everyone!!! I only have 3 more days of exams....then it's summer!!!
